The Pennsylvania Great Outdoors region is home to Cook Forest State Park, the second most visited park in the Keystone State. Cook Forest was rated as one of America’s top 50 state parks by National Geographic Traveler Magazine.

Cook Forest is appropriately nicknamed, “The Land of the Giants” for the old growth forest, Cathedral of Ancient Pines and Longfellow Pine, the tallest tree in in the northeastern United States.

See spectacular panoramic views of the Wild & Scenic Clarion River from Seneca Point and firetower. Other popular activities include horseback riding, canoe and kayaking, and miles of hiking trails.

Each June, the French and Indian War Encampment brings visitors from all over for a magical reenactment to the Sawmill Center, which hosts many performances and festivals along with a popular stop along the PA Wilds Artisan Trail.

Many cabins, lodges, and campgrounds in the area provide the perfect getaway experience!
